When it comes to getting your work out into the world, here’s one thing that I know for sure:
Buying another course, downloading another e-book, or joining another Facebook group isn’t giving you the results you’re craving.
(Like a steady stream of clients, an inbox full of collaborators, the growth of your platform, and interaction that brings you JOY instead of overwhelm and frustration.)
And while it seems like everyone else around you is getting massive results, you just can’t help but feel a bit lonely, isolated, uninspired, and paralyzed with where you are right now (not to mention where you are trying to go!).
What’s a heart-centred, big-dreaming creative to do?
Do you run a webinar? Offer your art or service at a steep discount? Blog 7 days a week?
(p.s. The answer is no.)
How can you actually start getting some REAL traction while also feeling BRILLIANT in your work, instead of doing the things that make you feel uninspired and weighed down?
I’ve got the answer, but first:
Do you remember the last time you had a lightning burst of inspiration and made. shit. happen?
→ Everything flowed from your pen (or fingers) directly onto the page without you having to set a timer or promise yourself a reward if you finished just. this. one. task.
→ You received amazing feedback from your peers about your idea, and people were lit up in anticipation of your brilliant idea.
→ You just felt so clear, as if you couldn’t believe you hadn’t thought of this idea sooner.
→ You may even think back to that time with nostalgia, saying “I wish I could bring back some of that energy and infuse it into what I’m doing right now.”
If you’re in a place where you feel like you’re investing in your work, but not actually GETTING anywhere, I want you to know that you’re not the only one, sister.
Even the most successful women I know get bogged down by the clutter (digital AND emotional) and can’t make progress; nor fully embody the woman, creator, or business owner that they’re meant to be.
but, there’s one thing you need to know about yourself... one thing I want you to ALWAYS remember...
Everything you need to know, everything that’s going to lead you to your success is already inside of you.
You just need help accessing it.
A five-day, four-night luxury retreat experience for you, a creative, heart-centered woman, who craves real connection, honest conversation, and who is READY for transformational changes in your business... and your life.
Press Play for a Taste of the Revivify Experience...
WHAT WE’LL DO:
REVIVIFY is a five-day, four-night luxury retreat on the shores of beautiful Lake Muskoka.
The purpose of this retreat is to get you to take ACTION on all those things that have been “on the back burner” for months (or years!)—from birthing your next big business idea, to starting your book, to redefining your relationship with beautiful, brilliant you.
But before you take that action, we first need to heal, dream, brainstorm, prioritize, excavate, learn and listen.
This retreat is centered around equipping you with the tools, practices and support system you need to implement your brilliance and infuse your projects and services with new life.
REVIVIFY is just long enough for you to have some major shifts and allow yourself to get real, honest, and vulnerable with the 7 other women you’ll be meeting. And it’s just short enough to appreciate the power of efficiency and six beautiful minds focused on just you and your work.
The retreat looks like this:
Thursday, September 21st•Arrival at the Toronto airport (YYZ) between 2pm - 4pm (approx.)
•Shuttle to retreat center, AKA meeting your brilliance circle sisters for the first time, get ready for a whole lot of: "me too!" and "I thought I was the only one." and "I can't believe we have so much in common!"
•Unpacking, settling in with your new roomie
•Welcome dinner, you are not going to believe the food, seriously our private chef has worked in 5 star restaurants all over the world, his creations are going to knock your socks off
•Bed (oh hello, you gorgeous 400-thread-count-butter-soft sheets you)
Friday, September 22nd - Sunday, September 24th
•Morning yoga, optional, but oh so wonderful
•Coffee, tea, breakfast. Slowly.
Immersive, transformational teaching and French salon-style discussion. Part of the experience is the mystery of these sessions and what unfolds as I guide you, by the hand, through my most powerful teachings and exercises. But suffice it to say: this is where the magic happens.
•Lunch (think delicious & healthy... fuelling you up for an energized afternoon)
Highly focused, individual transformational coaching and strategy sessions. This is where we get laser-focused on you, your work and getting your brilliance out into the world. Questions that come up during these sessions range from “how do I grow my platform so people know what I’m doing and take me seriously” to “how do I get my husband (or family) onboard with what it is I’m trying to do?”—and that’s just where we begin.
The coaching and strategy sessions are purposefully group-style so that you get the once in a lifetime experience of six focused minds on you and your next steps. The end result? A ton of clarity, surprising shifts, feeling truly seen and heard (maybe for the first time) and being with a group of women who are as invested in your success as you are.
•Down time to let it all marinate and let your brilliance come through
•Cocktails and dinner . Plus, a treat-laden, heart-opening finale celebration on Sunday
•Magical evening activity
Monday, September 25th
•Coffee, tea, breakfast. Again, slowly
•Reintegration into the “real world” exercise
•Shuttle back to the Toronto airport
Not mentioned: Transformational life shifts, life-altering coaching and facilitation to encourage you to uncover what’s holding you back and how to move forward, and a sisterhood of women with whom you’ll share every single tiny detail of the experience... and beyond (you’ll remain friends for a long time, guaranteed.)
Plus, I’m bringing my BFF Alex Honeysett (who just happens to be a marketing + brand strategist/goddess).
Alex will be with us throughout the retreat, providing real feedback on how to use your skills (the ones we uncover together!) strategically to amp up your visibility and get more eyes on your work—cause isn't that the point after all!
Alex and I are a powerhouse team, when we get on a roll the ideas fly fast and fabulous—you'll feel the magic in the air. (Seriously, goosebumps are common.)
Here's what one of the brilliant ladies at our last retreat had to say about working with Alex and me:
You should know:
There are only 6 spots in this retreat. Which means that it will be so intimate, so magical, so transformative that you won’t know how you operated before you came to REVIVIFY.
But they are also going to go quickly. And I’d love for you to be there.
And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get these AMAZING bonuses:
→A tailored-to-you summary of your BRILLIANCE that me and my girl Alex Honeysett, a marketing strategist and digital badass, will compile after the retreat is over. We call it your Reflections of Brilliance doc and it is solid gold for you and your brand.
Because wouldn’t it be nice to have a 360 degree perspective on the skills you ACTUALLY bring to the table that are so unique, you may not even notice them yourself?
→A 1:1 visibility raising strategy call with Alex to discuss the different ways you can begin to promote yourself and your revivified business/offering/creative work. After the call, Alex will craft a personalized visibility raising strategy plan for you that you can reference for months to come. Because taking ACTION is the most important part of this retreat and we want to break down ALL the hurdles we possibly can to help you take that action.
→Goodies, surprises, and lots of treats (can’t reveal everything yet... but join us if you want to know what’s in store!)
Not long ago, I felt the exact same way you do.
I needed a burst of inspiration to help deliver my brand new book into the world. But the words weren’t coming and I kept staring at my screen, waiting for the sentences to fly out of my fingers.
On a whim, I flew across the country (and down a few states) to a retreat in Carmel, California to seek some inspiration and advice on how to outline and write my first book.
What I didn’t bargain for was the amount of space and time I had away from my daily grind, to actually let my own brilliance out to play.
It was magical.
When I came home, I felt like I had been transformed.
I nailed down the vision my for book and actually started writing it, instead of staring at the blinking cursor and checking my email for the 900th time.
The time away allowed me to get CRYSTAL clear on my ideal client. You know, the one that lights me up and makes me want to sing their praises from the rooftops.
Getting those clients became easier, I stopped doing the admin and marketing tasks that I thought I was “supposed” to do, and my work literally felt like it was brand new again.
And I was more myself than I had ever been.
Plus, the women I met became my soul sisters. They helped me in so many ways, whether it was simply listening when I needed to be heard, or campaigning for me to their peers, or texting me to tell me “keep going” and “you’re almost there”.
Even now, they still remind me of my own brilliance when I (temporarily) forget. And we still connect every day. How many people can you say that about in your life?
Which is why this retreat won’t be a scheduled summer-camp of activities.
You can expect lots of luxurious time to sit down long enough to let yourself think without boundaries, either alone or with a small squad of women who've got your back.
Lots of people who are cheering for you, who are telling your inner mean girl to take a seat, and who genuinely want you to succeed.
Do you ever feel like being a girl boss, solo-preneur or conscious creative is a little lonely and (let's admit it) kinda terrifying?
At REVIVIFY you’ll get to take advantage of seven other smart, successful brains who get your work and will tell you the honest truth about your ideas and your creative pursuits. Plus I a have a feeling you just might find your own circle of soul sisters.
What’s it like to work with me anyway?
When you come to Revivify, you’ll finally be able to silence your inner mean girl.
You know, the one who keeps you playing small and prevents you from stepping into your brilliance.
And you’ll have a circle of women to help you do it. Because loneliness sucks.
→ Discover your unique talents, your unique voice, and your unique strengths (and how you’re NOT using them)
→ Decide what you really want to do with your work, and get help figuring out what you DON’T have to do anymore (just as important)
→ Figure out how to leverage these talents into more clients, customers, and collaborators
→ Train yourself (with the help of seven other women) to feel confident in your offerings and your strengths, instead of being nagged by that self-doubt that always seems to creep in
→ Use your voice. Loudly and proudly. Over and over again. Once you speak the scary things in safety (like your true desires or your deeply rooted fears), it becomes less scary to say them in public.
→ Find a mentor. Or a friend. Or both. Definitely both.
→ Become transformed. More yourself. Less like the “old” you, and more the “brilliant-creative” you you came here to be
IS REVIVIFY FOR ME?
Probably. But more specifically, it is if you:
→Are a female creative who has hit a plateau and needs... more
→Don’t have community, or at least not the right one (or just want more fantastic women in your life)
→Aren't sure you’ve got “it” to be successful (you do, but that’s beside the point)
→Wish you could get as excited about your current project as you were when you first started your business
→Are ready to get real, and push through discomfort to get to the other side of fear
→Need more time. More space. More... everything.
→Want less negativity. Less fear. Less throwing your hands up in frustration.
→Are committed to your work, to the point that you know it’s worth investing in
Also if you love food, love when someone else cooks for you or would like to experience the ultimate in rejuvenating luxury—eating five star cuisine while wearing your pajamas—then OMG you should TOTALLY come!
P.S. These are actual shots from our last retreat, Chef Don is the bomb.
Beyond everything mentioned above, you’ll get:
→Airport shuttles to and from Toronto Pearson International Airport
→Four nights luxury accommodation in Muskoka, the heart of Ontario’s “cottage country”
→All breakfasts, lunches, and dinners (and snacks!) from Thursday when you land to Monday when you leave (I love food, especially when other people make it for me—so be prepared to be delighted with deliciousness)
→Goodies, treats, and surprises both before and during our time together
What should I pack?
I want you to be as comfortable as possible, so feel free to stay comfy. Yoga pants, fluffy socks, soft sweaters, cozy jackets... it’s all good. However, we will have one dress up night where you’ll be able to wear something comfortable and that makes you feel confident and beautiful (great jeans and your favourite shirt or a dress if that's your jam).
(Yes, you can bring makeup and your straightener! I know feeling beautiful makes me feel confident, so no judgements here.)
The weather is a little back and forth at this time of year, so plan to pack both cozy clothes and summery clothes.
You’ll need to bring sneakers or running shoes as we’ll be outside walking around in the woods sometimes (no hiking boots, though).
What is required for this retreat?
A passport (no, seriously, if you’re coming from outside Canada you’ll need one). And the willingness to open yourself up to change and transformation. Other than that, just you and your business or creative ideas.
Where will we be staying?
We'll be staying in gorgeous Muskoka, located in the heart of Ontario, in the middle of spectacular cottage country. Our retreat centre is part gorgeous house, part woodland haven, part magical centre of transformation. I want you to feel like you’re coming home, which is why I intentionally chose this place, and am intentionally keeping our group small.
It will be private (just us!) and calming and nourishing. Seriously, check out the pictures below to get more of a feel for the space.
What are accommodations like?
Each of the decorator designed rooms has two single beds, so you will be sharing with another heart-centred soul.
I’ll be using intuitive magic (combined with a little practical wisdom) to get you matched up with your roomie.
As an introvert I get that this part can feel a little wobbly, but believe me when I say that there is synchronicity and magic at play here. #trustsurrenderleap
Of course if you have any questions or concerns about this, just pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! I’m more than happy to talk about it—my biggest priority is that you are comfortable.
How much is it?
The cost to attend the retreat is $3750— and that INCLUDES IT ALL:
:: 5 days luxury accommodation
:: 3 private-chef-crafted meals a day (including wine with dinner)
:: Transportation to and from the airport
:: Optional yoga class each morning
:: Hot seat brilliance sessions in our brilliance circle
:: Laser focused coaching and strategy with both Alex and Casey

:: Follow up visibility raising strategy session with Alex.
Plus a few more surprises along the way… cause that’s my kind of ALL INCLUSIVE!
How does payment work?
A deposit of $750 is required to secure your spot. Once you’re confirmed I’ll reach out to see if you would like to break your remaining payment into 1, 2, or 3 installments. We’ll figure out which works best, as long as you’ve paid in full by August 1st, we are golden.
Are there payment plans?
Sure are! See above.
Are these prices Canadian or American?
American. Thanks for asking!
Is my ticket refundable?
Because of the nature of this retreat, the initial deposit of $750 is non-refundable. I want you to commit to yourself and to this transformative experience, and paying the initial non-refundable deposit, knowing that you can’t take it back, tells the safety-loving, let’s-just-keep-playing-small, I’d-rather-just-hide-on-my-couch-and-watch-Netflix part of your brain, “we are doing this, even if we get a little scared later, it’s time, we are ready!”
If you choose to pay the entire amount upfront and you cancel 60 days before, you'll get your money back, less the initial $750 deposit.
If you choose to pay via a payment plan and cancel 60 days before, I will refund any payments, less the initial $750 deposit.
If you choose either plan and cancel less than 60 days before, I won’t be able to refund any past payments. This is because I’m getting everything personalized, and I want to invest in you just as much as you invested in me.
Still not sure?
If you are on the fence and just can’t decide if Revivify is right for you; right for your unique biz and creative life; or right for you right now—then let’s figure it out together.
Revivify is an intimate experience and deciding whether or not to attend should be too. So if you would like a little help working through your decision or would love some answers to your burning questions, then let’s jump on the phone.
THIS WILL NOT BE A SALES CALL (sorry for the ALL caps but I want to make that part abundantly clear).
Yes, Revivify is going to be luxuriously fun and rejuvenating, but it’s also designed to be deeply transformational for the women who attend. My top priority is ensuring that each woman there is ready, willing and committed to this sacred time together—and that each woman who attends is poised to get as much out of it as we put into it (which, as you can imagine, is going to come straight from our hearts).
So if you want to talk it through, shoot me an email and we’ll set up a time to chat.
To knowing it’s right,
